My First Sunday Morning Sermon

On March the 6th, 2016, I was honored to preach my first ever Sunday morning sermon at First Baptist Church of New Albany in Ohio. To skip my comments and just listen to the sermon see below. A few notable moments. Upon arrival I found out they were happy to allow me to lead the […]
